This picture pretty much sums up the weekend: I love the innocence of childhood curiosity. We were on a mission to find animal tracks. The kids found raccoon and deer prints.
I packed in the materials we needed to make casts of the deer tracks. How is that for a prepared mom?! I made some casts of another track but some kids from hell smashed it. Brats.
Here are the casts that survived.
I did try a couple of new recipes that were hits.
How about some Cheese Stuffed Sliders? These are filled with 2% cheddar and were very good and filling. I did not top them with grilled onions like the recipe called for. Next time I'll try that. You can tell from the picture that I like a lot of mustard on the burger. No ketchup, please.
And this recipe is now one of my favorites: Fettuccine Alfredo with Vegetables (7 pts) Yum! Just follow the link to get the recipe. :)
I think we're pretty much caught up. It's just been crazy busy for me lately with trying to play catch up with teaching the kids, the nature challenge missions, trying to lose weight, keeping up with Charlie's obsession with catching bugs, keeping house, etc. Busy, busy, busy. You'd think losing weight would be easy with so much going on! But I don't think it's ever really easy. Unless you're sick.
Speaking of busy, I need to go get chemicals for science experiments, groceries, teach, take Rachel to cake class and cook. Fortunately I already walk/jogged on the treadmill for 2.5 miles. Great way to start the day. :)
Tonight I think we'll start trying to learn Latin. Hey, why not?
